Class valedictorian was Riley Minnaert; salutatorians were Jodi Kaiping and Sarah Lepp.

In a touching tribute, deceased classmate Mikayla Lynn Hoefft was honored during commencement. The class wore purple ribbons and armbands in Hoefft’s honor, and also presented the Hoefft family with flowers during the service.

Hoefft died from injuries sustained in a car crash on Aug. 12, 2011.
